Adverbs are describing words - they can tell you more information about verbs, adjectives, other adverbs, or entire sentences. For example, adverbs can explain where, when, why, or how something was done.
There are a few categories of adverbs (locative, temporal, causal, and modal) - I will share more information about each of them on the pages linked below.
Each adverb has only one form - i.e. they don't change their endings / are not declined.
If we put them before a noun they have to be declined (the ending has to be changed).
Adverbs describe circumstances and are more related to verbs, NOT nouns.
They are used to describe how, when, why or where something happens. They are unchangeable and can’t be declined.
Gestern, blue = Adverb
ganz, brown = Particle (special type of adverb)
tollen, black = Adjective
Temporal adverbs tell you things related to time - the point in time, time period, order, repetition, frequency, etc. of something happening.
They are connected to the questions: Wann?, Ab wann?, Wie lange?, Wie oft?, Bis wann?, Seit wann?
Example: „Ich gehe morgen einkaufen.“
Locative adverbs tell you something about locations.
They go with the questions: Wo? (Where?), Wohin? (Where to?), Woher? (From Where?)
Example: „Wo ist dein Vater?“ – „Unten!“
The adverb "hin" describes movement away from the speaker.
The adverb "her" describes movement towards the speaker.
Example: „Komm bitte her! Ich muss mit dir reden.“
Conjunctive adverbs are adverbs that combine sentences, clauses, words, and phrases with each other.
The difference between conjunctions and conjunctive adverbs: conjunctive adverbs are grammatically a part of the sentence while conjunctions are not.
Example: „Anna kommt später, außerdem kommt Jan auch später.“
